Put some jingle in your mingle with a couple of holiday networking events
We are at the point in the year when the short days and early nights can make it a struggle to motivate to an after-hours business event. Why not take advantage of the holiday season to do something a little different?
Many businesses offer holiday open houses and events designed to thank their customers, spread good cheer, and promote their business.
The Whole Foods Market in Bedford is hosting Holiday Arts ‘n Eats from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM in their store at 21 South River Road. This free event will showcase tasty treats from local suppliers as well as a selection of work from local Etsy artists. It’s a great opportunity to do some casual networking and shopping before you head home.
Also next week, Marketplace Home Mortgage is hosting a free Holiday Open House Soiree including drinks, food, and fun for clients, industry partners, and the community. The event will be held at the Marketplace Home Mortgage office, 116 South River Road in Bedford, on Thursday, December 13th from 4 – 7 p.m.
Marketplace Home Mortgage is an official Toys for Tots donation site, for anyone who would like to bring a donation.
